title: The Outage
artist: by Erica Scourti
The Outage is a ghostwritten memoir based on the artist Erica Scourti’s digital footprint.
Each book draws on profiles and data based on her public and semi-private online activity, obtained through the expertise of professionals working within the fields of cyber security, digital privacy, and social profiling.
Working with a ghostwriter, the material collected informs the basis of a text narrating her memoirs, extrapolating different versions of her aggregate data self, constructed through her digital footprint.
